Default Grams or percentages, please help

I am new to carb counting and just trying to find my way by reading several sites on carb counting. I am entering my food each day on Fitday, however I am still not sure if I should be counting grams or looking at the persentage of carbs vs fat and calories. I am diabetic and need to lose about 70 lbs.

I have been eating low carb below 40grams each day for about 3 weeks now. I have had a dramatic drop in my blood sugar which is great but not losing any weight. I am drinking 8 glasses of water per day. Am I eating too many carbs?

Typical day:
Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 pieces turkey bacon
snack: 1 0z. cheese
lunch: shrimp 4 oz or chicken with green salad 1.5 cups and 2 tbsp dressing
snack: 12 almonds or cheese or hummus and celery
Dinner: chicken stirfry with broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage
snack: 2 Breton low fat crackers with peanutbutter or cheese
